ID glide - lubricant by I-D Lubricants - review by JustYourAverageGuy

Add resource

Better than KY, not as good as Silicone but highly universal.

An above average lube that can be used for any toy for use vaginally or anally. A great lube for anyone looking to own one lube for all of their needs.
Compatible with all toys, above average performance for water based lube.
Gets sticky after a while.

useful review
Prior to using ID Glide, I had very little experience with lube. Prior to using this product, I used plain KY lube and some Astroglide. I picked up the 9.5 oz bottle when I bought my first toy. I wanted a lube that was fairly universal which could be used on any toy and either vaginally for use with my partner or anally for either of us.

I have never used a silicone lube, which I have heard performs better, but since most of my toys are silicone, those lubes really aren't an option.

ID Glides ingredients are fairly standard for water based lubes: purified water glycerin propylene glycol cellulose polymer polyethylene oxide sodium benzoate methyl paraben carbomer 981 tetrahydroxypropyl ethylenediamine diazolidynl urea EDTA.

Overall, I have come to like this lube better than the mass market options as it works in all sorts of cases. I do wish it were a bit thicker because it has a tendency to be runny at times. It performs well in all situations, but like all water based lubes, it dries up and become sticky. However, I have found that this lube performs pretty well for a water based lube in the shower and even when submerged for a short amount of time. It does rinse off with water which is also very convenient. It comes in many different sizes from 2 oz all the way to 35.5 oz with a pump top.

Once the bottle runs out, I do think I will pick up another bottle of this stuff. I would rank it as above average, but not excellent given its few downfalls. I believe there are also a few other ID brand water based lubes with different features, such as warming as well, which could add an extra perk to this product.
Follow-up commentary
This lube has been ol' reliable for me for about 6 months. It took me a while to make it through the bottle. I think I will be buying another bottle of this stuff once my current bottle is empty.

I will say that I used this lube for anal play quite a bit, and now that I have found Anal Lube, I definitely have found a replacement for this lube when playing anally. However, for use during sex or for masturbators or if my girlfriend needs lube for a toy for vaginal use, this has become the go to.

Not bad, not amazing, worth keeping around. Water based so it is compatible with all toys. Definitely all positives!
